I will put in a new PCV. Good tip.

Driving it that little, I'd just add oil and drive it. JMHO!

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction

Put a new genuine Toyota PCV valve in last Saturday. No more blue smoke at start up.

Cost a whopping $6.58 at the Toyota dealer.

Re: Blue smoke on start up - solutions in a bottle?

One quart in a thousand is not really all that bad, especially if the manual says it can go through an quart in only 600 miles and still be "normal". They are giving themselves a pretty generous allowance for acceptable consumption. I would consider a quart in 600 miles to be pretty awful consumption. At that rate there would be no reason to actually drain the oil and change it!
